CONGRATULATIONS! to our first makeup competition WINNER- Christie Harris, a US Army Veteran from Clarksville, TN. Christie recently completed the Freelance Makeup Program at Academy of Make Up Arts. Christie has won a $500 Scholarship towards any future program at AMUA, $50 from Performance Cosmetics, and a gift bag from MAC Cosmetics! Christie will also be asked to compete in our Aspiring Makeup Artist of the Year competition in December!
CONGRATULATIONS! also to our First Runner Up- Reneeka McClain who won the popularity vote on Facebook!
Our judges had a very difficult time choosing the winner; each had it’s own strengths but Christie’s was the top choice because of the excellent craftsmanship, interpretation of the theme, and finally the deal breaker was her overall completed design. Judges deemed this makeup to be “Photo shoot Ready”.
Great job to all the contestants, and please step up your skills again for our next Makeup Artist Competition!
Special thanks to our Judges: Facebook Fan Page, IMATS NY Student Competition 2nd Place Winner Kenzie Gregg, and Celebrity Makeup Artist Jillian Doherty
